What Color Is Your Parachute - The Flower Diagram

A while back I was using the great book by Richard Bolles "What Color Is Your Parachute".  In the book Richard makes extensive use of "The Flower" diagram for organizing your thoughts on what you are looking for in the ideal job.


I couldn't find a decent image/PDF to print for this, so I made my own (w/ help from my wife).
Here are the image files if you want to use them.  The first is a printable PDF (8.5x11) and the second is the original Adobe Illustrator version.  I'm clearly not a pro at AI, but it works :-)

Enjoy.  And happy hunting!



  1. Thank you for this! I'm honestly surprised they didn't offer a PDF on the website for the book, but I guess that's what you're supposed to buy the Workbook for? Thanks for putting this together, it looks a lot nicer than the photo copy I made!

  2. Thank you so much!!! I needed this for class. I appreciate it.

  3. Thanks for this! I am doing this exercise and wanted a worksheet exactly as you made it.

  4. Yes :) Thank you for sharing the worksheet with us!!

  5. Wow, so kind of you! Thank you (and your wife) for taking the time to put this together and being so gracious in sharing this! Bless you : )
